Poached Eggs over Braised Vegetables
3–4 cups chopped vegetables of your choice: onions, broccoli, spinach, grated carrots, potatoes, and yams all work well
3–4 organic eggs
1 tablespoon fresh herbs (rosemary and thyme recommended)
Pinch of salt and/or pepper
Minced ginger and/or garlic (optional)
Place 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a sauté pan. Add minced ginger and/or garlic, if you desire. Add hardest vegetables to be braised, cover, and bring to a medium temperature. Cook until vegetables are tender, and then add broccoli or other softer vegetables. When vegetables are about halfway done, gently crack eggs on top of vegetables and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and fresh herbs. Cover and allow to simmer until eggs reach your desired level of hardness. Add pepper if you like. Serve.
